“The frequency, scope and sophistication of cyberattacks are growing at a worrisome rate in healthcare. Between 2010 and 2014, approximately 37 million healthcare records were compromised in data breaches. But in the first four months of 2015 alone, more than 99 million healthcare records have already been exposed through 93 separate attacks,” said Devin Jopp, Ed.D, president and CEO of WEDI. “The risk of cyberattacks is no longer limited to the IT desk – it is a key business issue that must be addressed by executive leadership teams in order to build that ‘culture of prevention." http://bit.ly/1Gx9x3p
